Namaste, and please stay away

This beautiful image comes to us courtesy of David Ward, who stumbled upon this spot in his traditional territory on Saturday while self-isolating in the woods, collecting some firewood and looking for inspiration.

He also stumbled on tons of out-of-towners camping along the lake, to whom I would say: Namaste.

Namaste – I see the god/goddess in you. I see your fear and denial and desire to escape/be safe/be far from the crowds. I see the shadows of your actions, and the stress and risk it brings into my community, among people who are vulnerable in ways you might not recognise.

Namaste, I say, respectfully, noting it rhymes with stay-the-f*&*-away. Teehee.)
